“life was a roller coaster ride
pushin’ me up, down, side to side
i could barely hold on, spinnin’ out of control
i was lost, lost like a ship in the deep blue sea
like an angel of light You came to rescue me
You must have found something special in me

Your love’s done something to me
changed my life completely
You’re everything
the one and only thing that i need
every day i’m walking on sunshine
i am Yours and You’re mine
tonight i feel like i’m on top of the world

as i soar through the starry sky across the galaxy
on the wings of Your love forever carrying me
i’ve only begun, there’s so much more to see
lock me up, throw away the key
i’m a prisoner of love, but i never felt so free
You’ve given me more than i ever dreamed

i’ve always felt there had to be something more
worth livin’ and dying for
now i know that something is You
this is how life was meant to be
just having You here with me
with You, just You, together forevermore

life was a roller coaster ride
pushin’ me up, down, side to side
i could barely hold on spinnin’ out of control”

~ “Love’s done something”… casting pearls

I so love this song. It is so fun and bouncy, yet more than that, it has this great meaning… God’s love has done something in my life, and yeah, there are some hard times. There are some really, incredibly hard times, but that does not mean that He is not here with me. He is always with me. His love won’t leave me. I love the joy found in this song. His love has done something to me, changed my life so completely, turned it upside down. God’s love is like that. It won’t take away our hard times, but it will give us joy throughout the hard times. God’s love gives me something to smile about when I don’t have anything at all to smile about. He gives me the joy that is in my heart. This song says, “every day I’m walking on sunshine…” that is joy.

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again ~ Rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4)

Be glad. Find joy in today. God made today.

“This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!” (Psalm 118:24)

He wants us to be glad and find joy in His creation. That is what I want to do… I want to be full of joy. Always. And really, I have every reason to be. God’s love has done something in my life; it has given me joy. It’s given me life… it’s given me love.
